We recently stayed at the Peake-Fairfax House, and we truly had a wonderful time! Being from Texas, I read all the reviews to find a place to book for our visit, and I can honestly say that all the wonderful things written in the previous reviews are all true. Chet and Dorothy make you feel right at home, like you're family more than a guest. Everything is very nice, clean, and cozy. The healthy breakfasts were very good, and you get expert advice on everything to see and do in the area. We were late arriving the first evening due to flying and then driving 3 hours, but they were gracious and welcoming. They both took turns taking us to the subway connection to DC on different mornings. The location of this place is fantastic - close to everything! The whole stay was pure enjoyment, mainly because of the Nagle family...just wonderful people!
